Chris Carson is gobbling up the running downs work in Seattle. In the last three weeks, Carson has seen no less than 26 touches in a game. Carson is a true workhorse back. He's going up against a Ravens Defense that ranks 10th against opposing rushers, but don't let that number fool you. Baltimore played the Dolphins in Week 1 and the Cardinals, who had yet to put things together, in Week 2. The Ravens have been exposed on the ground in matchups versus the Chiefs and the Browns. Don't expect Carson to slow down this week. If you own Carson, start him with full confidence.
Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 18, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.
Fantasy Spin: Carson has been one of the best running backs over the last three weeks and will continue to receive plenty of touches in the offense. He should be a starting option in every league this week.
Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (non-injury) was upgraded to a full participant in practice Thursday, Oct. 17.
Fantasy Spin: Carson has continued to hold off Rashaad Penny as the workhorse out of the Seahawks' backfield. He has seen 20-plus carries in three straight games and topped 100 yards each time. There's no need to worry about Penny unless Carson were to miss time.
Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (non-injury) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 16.
Fantasy Spin: Carson has rushed for at least 100 yards in each of the last three games and has received over 20 carries in each of those games. He should be a starting option in all leagues this week.
Seahawks' RB Chris Carson scored 25.90 fantasy points in Sunday's Week 6 win in Cleveland. Carson ran for 124 yards and caught four passes for 35 yards with one touchdown. It's the 2nd time this season Carson scored at least 25 fantasy points in a game.
Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson carried the ball 24 times on Sunday, tallying 124 yards and a touchdown. It makes the third straight game where Carson has cleared the century mark, and the 5.2 YPC was his best mark of the season. Carson also caught four passes for another 35 yards, and his touchdown was the crucial game-winning score late in the fourth quarter. Carson has already racked up 504 yards on the ground this season, and his 19 receptions are just one shy of the total number he had all of last year. Seattle's offense has been rolling this season, and Carson is a critical part of why. Expect him to continue to carry the rock often.
Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson rushed 24 times for 124 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the Cleveland Browns and he added four receptions for 35 yards on four targets.
Fantasy Spin: Carson has three straight 100-yard games, and his yardage total has increased in each of the past four outings. This was his first touchdown since Week 1. After some early fumbling problems, Carson has righted the ship and looks like a RB1 in fantasy these days.
Seattle's RB Chris Carson ran for 124 yards on 24 carries with one touchdown in Sunday's win in Cleveland. It was Carson's 3rd consecutive 100+ yard rushing performance. He has averaged 115 yards rushing in those games.
Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson has no injury designation for Sunday's game against the Browns, and head coach Pete Carroll told reporters that he's fine. On top of that, Carson will likely be one of the central pieces of Seattle's offense once again. Carson proved critical last week against the Rams, and with Cleveland packing a strong pass rush including Myles Garrett, fantasy owners should expect to see Carson play a pivotal role to slow down that rush. Carson hasn't been putting up huge YPC numbers, but Seattle has given him enough touches to bring plenty of fantasy value. That should continue in Cleveland.
Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 11, and is not on the injury report for Week 6.
Fantasy Spin: Carson has received at least 15 carries in every game this season and has rushed for at least 100 yards in each of the last two games. He should be at least a No. 2 running back in all fantasy leagues.
Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson (shoulder) was added to the Week 6 injury report and was limited in practice on Thursday. Carson was available to reporters after practice, though, which is something the Seahawks typically won't allow with players whose statuses are in question. That means Carson should be fine for Week 6 against the Browns, but keep an eye on his Friday status just to be sure. He's been dominating touches in the backfield and should remain a low-end RB1 against Cleveland this weekend. Backup Rashaad Penny (hamstring) was on the report also, but he practiced in full. He should remain the change of pace and have low-end flex appeal in deeper PPR leagues.
Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (shoulder) popped up on the injury report Thursday, Oct. 10, as limited.
Fantasy Spin: There shouldn't be much concern over Carson, as he was fine Wednesday. Watch for his Friday status, but he should remain a high-end RB2/low-tier RB1 this week against the Cleveland Browns.
Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson played 62 offensive snaps in the Week 5 victory over the Los Angeles Rams Thursday, Oct. 3. Rashaad Penny played just 12 snaps in his return from injury.
Fantasy Spin: Carson ran the ball 27 times for 118 yards and added one five-yard touchdown catch. Penny rushed six times for 18 yards while adding a 30-yard catch-and-run. It was only Penny's first game back, but Carson was the much more impressive rusher all night and should continue to perform at an RB1 level while Penny is relegated to a handcuff.
Seahawks' RB Chris Carson ran for 118 yards on 27 carries but no touchdowns in Thursday's win against the Rams. It was Carson's 2nd consecutive 100+ yard rushing performance. He has averaged 111 yards rushing in those games.
Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson was rolling again on Thursday, racking up 118 yards on 27 carries in the team's win over LA. Carson also caught the game-winning touchdown pass, though he forced Seahawks fans to suffer tiny heart attacks as he tipped the wide-open 4th down pass up in the air and had to snag it as it headed out of bounds. Carson did a fantastic job hanging on to the ball even though the Rams were obviously trying to punch it out on every play. Carson has surpassed 100 yards rushing in two straight games, and he's got three touchdowns on the year. He's also still clearly the favorite in the backfield, and it looks like there's no stiff competition to take the job away from him.
Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson carried the ball 27 times for 118 yards in Week 5 against the Los Angeles Rams. He also caught a five-yard touchdown pass.
Fantasy Spin: After averaging just 53 yards rushing over his first three games (and fumbling in each of them), Carson has bounced back to tote the rock 49 times for 222 yards in a five-day span. He almost botched a fourth-down TD pass from Wilson but was able to catch his own carom to avert disaster. Back on track, Carson is a borderline top-20 fantasy back moving forward.
Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson has been a linchpin in their offense so far, and owners should expect him to see at least 15 carries against the Rams on Thursday night. That said, whether he sees more will depend on how his team's defense is doing at stopping the Rams from scoring. If the game is close or Seattle is losing, Carson has a tendency to be lost in the shuffle for a quarter or more. If the game is a blowout, he remains the primary ball-handler. Either way, Carson will likely get a couple of cracks at hitting the end zone early in the game. LA has allowed the second-most rushing touchdowns to opposing running backs so far this season, so expect that Carson will see the rock when Seattle sees the red zone. He'll just have to hope their defense can hold the Rams in return.
Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson didn't have any fumble issues on Sunday. After suffering a terrible string of fumbles so far this season, Carson and a host of Seattle teammates were peppered with questions about them all week. Everyone steadfastly told reporters that the team was committed to Carson, and they wanted him to just focus on running with confidence, not worrying about fumbling. Carson did just that on Sunday as he carried the balled 22 times for 104 yards and caught four passes to tack on 41 more through the air. Carson looked the part of a feature back, and things are looking a lot brighter now that the team is coming off a road win.
Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson ran 22 times for 104 yards and added four receptions for 41 more yards in Week 4 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Fantasy Spin: Most importantly, Carson did not fumble - marking the first time he did not do so this season. His ball security woes reportedly had some questioning his status as the starter, but this performance figures to strengthen his grip on the job. After handling 26 touches in this contest, however, it might be a tall order for him to post anything more than RB2 production on Thursday night against the Los Angeles Rams to begin Week 5.
Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson rushed 22 times for 104 yards and caught four passes for 41 yards in a 27-10 win over the Arizona Cardinals in Week 4.
Fantasy Spin: It was Carson's first 100-yard rushing effort of the year, but he has logged at least 15 carries in all four games and has been more active in the passing attack. He is a volume-based RB2 candidate.
